    But somehow, Ford always ruins them or never produces them at all. Besides the horrible name (MKS :ugh: ), this car looks great. Everyone loves Cadillac but they don't make anything besides the 2007 Escalade that can touch the interior of this car. It also has 315hp and AWD.

    iLet's see, It won't have those headlights and It won't have that interior, but a similar interior to a similar car that is already in production.

    This car is also a good example of how you take retro or traditional styling cues and make them 21st century. The interior is especially unique looking.

    This is also a better looking car than the Cadillac STS.

    I think it has a lot to do with how most of Ford's concepts are true concepts...

    While some manufacturers concepts are at worst producible, and at best pre-production models

    Uh, yeah. It's a big luxury car. That's pretty much what they go for.

    I always thought Ford did pretty good with translating concepts to production.

    It's GM that falls face first.

    That is the gayest gauge cluster ever.
    If they actually manufacture that car, it needs to have gauges like the Aviator:
